Television repairman?

Our TV has begun to suddenly turn off after being on anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more. Remedies suggested in the user’s manual and at the Sony FAQ site haven’t worked.

Can anyone recommend a TV repair to take a look at it? The TV is too large to take to a store, so we need someone who can come to our place. Thanks,


Help with health insurance decision

I recently met with someone from Blue Box Insurance and he presented me with a couple of plans. But I am not really familiar enough with the health care system here and what the best insurance option would be for me. Is there someone here who is very knowledgeable about this and would be willing to advise me on what my best option would be?

I can be reached by email ( and WhatsApp (+593 99 385 0065).

A Jobs Idea

Every one of us who have been here any length of time has seen the increase of begging and the visible hunger of the poor. I don’t know if this is a good idea or not but one thing every open store in Cuenca has are items that just seem to sit there unsold forever. Nothing ever gets thrown out.

I know a store owner on Calle Larga that sells just about everything. There are Clorox bottles on a top shelf that you can’t read the labels because they are covered with inches of dust. I’m sure she would love a free clean-up crew in return for some of her really old items. There are stores with more cheap watches that will never be sold. Parts for coffee makers, household items etc. Expired food cans.

You name the product or store and you’ll find products that have been on shelves for years. Just collecting dust. Maybe some of the fabric stores have boxes of scrap or old samples. Clothing stores with outdated clothing. I’m sure I am underestimating what we could and will find.

We ask the Mayor or Governor to donate some empty space. There is plenty of that around. It would not have to be very large but we also have to remember that a pandemic is ongoing. We can get unemployed people to break down the products into salvageable materials; metals, plastics, screws, washers, rubber etc.

I’m sure there are a number of expats with way more knowledge on this subject then I have. Undoubtedly, there will be problems and drawbacks. But if we could start with a small, cleanup your store free crew and a small salvage crew, who knows where it this will lead. Maybe this idea could be incorporated into an existing organization or maybe not. I’m just throwing this out there. It could generate jobs, improve the environment and give a little hope for some people who are now walking the streets.

I have thick skin, so I am ready for the good, bad and the ugly comments that am sure will be forthcoming from posting an idea here. Hopefully there will be more good ones than bad. BTW I’m an elder like many reading this and I am willing to volunteer some personal hours into a project like this. Hope this type of project will appeal to some of our younger generations and they can run with it.

I only walk these days lol! Please notice I am not asking for any donations just time and good ideas. Let’s get a positive consensus first. Maybe a group of us with like thinking and varied experience can create something good for a City and Country we now call home.

At this point in time, please just email me at Thanks for reading.

Round trip flight from Ecuador to Austin TX

The Guayaquil airport website says no CV19 testing is needed for international departures. Is this also true for Quito international departures?

And the Guayaquil airport prefers that international arrivals present a less than 7-day old CV19 test, which allows residents to quarantine at home. Back in May, the Quito airport was testing all international arrivals (per their website). Is Quito still doing this, or have they conformed to Guayaquil airport’s procedures?

Lastly, does Austin TX require that US citizen international arrivals quarantine? And does Austin require a CV19 test for international arrivals or departures?

Thank you for your help,

The lowest drug prices in Cuenca

The lowest prices for meds in Cuenca are offered by what appears to be a not-for-profit called Corpdesfa (Corporacion de Desarrollo Social Para la Niñez y la Familia Dedicada a Actividades de Asistencia Social y Atencion Medica)

Their locations can be found on this Google map as Corpdesfa or Farrmacia Corpdesfa.,-79.0157809,15z/data=!3m1!4b1

Their prices are at least 20% lower than the corporate pharmacy chains. They are also cheaper than Farmasol (owned by the Municipality of Cuenca). They carry the most common medications.

Rejuvenation home massage of Cuenca, $10 discount on all services

Lack of human contact affects your physical and mental health. Massage can reverse these conditions.

Stress, depression and anxiety cause negative physiological effects. The body releases the hormone cortisol in response to these stressors. Cortisol can increase heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, and muscle tension, it can also suppress the digestive system and the immune system.
We have been using “human touch” for healing purposes since the dawn of humanity. Good doctors recommend massage, yoga, meditation, not as “alternative” treatments, but as a continuation and extension of treatments.

Lack of human contact affects people’s health and psychological well-being on a daily basis. “Human contact is very solid. We need connection for our well-being. It reduces stress, puts us on the ground and connects us, not only to others, but to ourselves.”

Solution: get a relaxing and healthy quality massage at home. Based on the safety procedures required by the health authorities, I will take all the hygiene and safety measures that you would expect. I have experience in deep tissue massage, relaxing, Swedish. Massage is your way of taking control of your health and wellness and reducing stress in the privacy of your home.

I now have a portable massage table if you request it there is an additional $6 for the taxi transportation fee.

Call today to schedule your health restoration appointment.

1 hour massage $35 / $25
1.5 hour massage $45 / $35

In search of a recording studio

For almost 4 years I have been recording here in Cuenca. Almost 200 songs. Originally the engineer set up his studio at a local school. When the school decided to turn the studio into a radio station, he set up a home studio. His equipment was excellent. As a singer I was immediately impressed with his Neumann U-87 legendary industry standard large diaphragm condenser microphone. It’s sweet!

Take Two… Coronavirus. He has stopped all recording in his home. I certainly can understand. So… I decided to set up my own home studio. In the meantime, I am looking for an alternative location to record a handful of songs. Any leads are appreciated.

Coffee delivery from The Hop Factory

We are the only distributor of Vilcabamba’s Café Dona Julita in Cuenca. We started offering it for sale because it is all we drink and as long as we can keep the supply coming in, we will share with the public. The three styles are:

Premium: medium-dark roast $4/400 g available in whole bean or ground (finely ground).

Gourmet: medium roast $5/400 g available in whole bean or ground (course grind).

Honey: medium dark roast $6/400 g available in whole bean or ground (the grind is not super fine-coarser than the Premium dark roast similar to the Gourmet).

Honey roast is a special coffee made for our Black Honey coffee liqueur with Bourbon beans, we let the white pulp of the coffee bean air dry to create a coffee honey coating prior to roasting. Rare and amazing but limited supply.

Our Black Honey is our fantastic coffee liqueur. Developed from a year-long collaboration with the Dona Julita team and our team at The Hop Factory. Very similar to Kahlua but fresh brewed with no preservatives /filters to create a 100% locally made natural taste. (makes amazing white/black Russians).

Are you having problems dealing with an overprice budget?

Ecuador like many other countries is passing through a hard economic situation for all citizens. With uncertainty, each money decision becomes a challenge. Utilities and services rise in price and the job gets undone or not the way you wanted, mostly for miscommunication. Ecuador has very different ways to make things done rather than United States where you know exactly how to handle a good deal because you know how the numbers works. If you want to understand hands down how to make things happen in Cuenca please let me help you to save time and money making the experience not only satisfying for your project, whatever it is, but also reducing cost and enhancing the outcome. I have 5 years of experience in Cuenca interacting with locals and expats on different scenarios making sure they understand each other for mutual benefit.

My name is Julian Cuesta, I am an engineer and I am here to help you. My English skills and my native Spanish will make sure you get what you want without that sour American overprice they give you sometimes. Big or small projects, I am here for you. For me there are no big or small questions about anything you are looking for so, bring it.

See you on your next project!

Daily encouragement from Trinity Vineyard Church

Yielded Interactions

“Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” Romans 15:7

Have you been wounded by someone recently? What is your natural reaction? You probably want to wound them for wounding you. But is it possible to look at the person behind the behavior? What if you sought to place yourself in their skin to seek to understand why they would act in a hurtful way? Maybe they are deeply hurting. Maybe they are searching for something to anesthetize their pain.

You cannot control how they treat you. However, you can control how you respond to their treatment of you. When you respond, allow the Holy Spirit to express His nature and character through you.

Jesus is the ultimate pattern for us to model our lives after. He exemplified how to respond to difficult people. “When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly” (1 Peter 2:23). Rather than retaliating, Jesus entrusted Himself to the Judge who is all-knowing and all-seeing. God doesn’t miss even a fragment of an interaction that you have with others. Entrust yourself to His care. He knows what you are dealing with. By the way, He created the person who has wounded you. In fact, God even gave them His best by allowing Jesus to die on the cross for them also.

Accepting others will not come naturally. Accepting others, especially difficult people, comes supernaturally as you surrender your life completely to Jesus. Allow Him to be Lord of your life and your interactions with people who may potentially hurt you. Jesus specializes in pain management.

Great news about online visa applications

The Immigration Office in Azogues is now accepting visa applications, both temporary and permanent, Cédulas and Tourist Visa extensions online.

Hello, my name is Isabel Mosquera. I am an Ecuadorian, but I lived in Canada for many years and speak English. I have been a facilitator for over 7 years. I have assisted more than 250 expats in obtaining their visas, temporary and permanent, cedulas, translations, health insurance, housing and much more. These services are available as one fee package or individually. I own a car, so transportation is always included at no extra charge. I have always gotten my clients their visas, even under the most difficult of circumstances, such as unreadable fingerprints for FBI reports. Have you moved to Ecuador without the required documents? Don’t worry, I can help. I offer free consultations, either by telephone, email or in person. I will be happy to provide you with references. Please feel free to contact me for a free consultation.

I look forward to serving you.

Learn Spanish and French and have fun doing it

Hi, I’m Elisa and I’ve been a certified teacher of Spanish and French for more than ten years. I’ve studied Spanish language and literature and I worked as a high school teacher of French and Spanish in Cuenca, for five years; then I went to the South of France, where I studied audiovisual production for five years and I was also a Spanish teacher for l’Académie de Montpellier (the French Government) for two years. I came back to Cuenca recently and I’ve been working as a freelance
French and Spanish teacher for a few months.

All of these departures and arrivals make me feel concerned about films, literature, gastronomy but also about psychology, sociology and ecology. I would like to share with you all my passions.

I’ve developed a dynamic method to teach languages. My goal is to adapt the lessons to your needs and interests. If you want to learn Spanish I can show you the city while we have conversations about the history and the present of the city. If your needs are related to grammar, I can find a way to make it simple. And if you are interested in learning French we can talk about French culture and It will be a pleasure to introduce you to French gastronomy.

I’m ready to comply with all the safety measures to have safe face-to-face classes, I can come to your home or you can come to mine but, if you prefer, we can start our classes online.

Recommendation for Jimmy Quintero, personal trainer

Exercise and massage therapy.

Want to get in the best shape of your life? Jimmy Quintero is just the man who can help you reach your goal. I have been working with Jimmy for about a year and am close to the weight I was in college. I had gained weight following a knee replacement and hernia surgery.

Jimmy was born in Caracas, Venezuela and has lived and worked in Cuenca for more than 16 years. He speaks Spanish and understands some English. You can still work with him even if you don’t speak Spanish because you shadow his moves.

In the beginning, he brought all the equipment, but I have since purchased all my own because I use it when he’s not here. We use leg weights, other special bands with handles and a pulley system that attaches to the door and allows me to work on many muscle groups. We do 55 minutes of exercise and 55 minutes of massage.

Jimmy has one opening for someone who wants to lose weight and gain strength. He has Tuesday and Friday available from 3-5pm. Eight sessions, twice a week cost $250.

Jimmy is especially helpful post-surgically to get back in shape and is always continuing his education. The ultimate professional.

Recommendation for Nelson Panama, mixto driver and helper

Nelson is a dependable driver and can assist with many things. He has helped me move furniture, helped me shop for lighting fixtures and driven me to the country. Several of my friends use his services and are very happy with him. His English is excellent, and he’s a pleasure to know. Restrictions have been lifted so he is now available 7 days per week. I highly recommend Nelson for assistance with shopping, any kind of errand, and as a driver.

Recommendation for Lady Liberty Comida, great cook

I have ordered several things from Inez, very happy with what she prepares and will be a repeat customer. Her cheesecake is getting quite a reputation in the city, and it’s no wonder – it’s the best I’ve ever had. I’ve tried her corvina dinner, Venezuelan rice, chicken pot pie and Shepherd’s pie – all seasoned perfectly and beautifully prepared. She uses high quality ingredients in everything she makes. I like having her black bean veggie burgers in the freezer for something quick. I highly recommend checking out what Inez has to offer – you can be added to her weekly menu list at her email below.

Recommendation for Daniel Mocha, matricular (car registration) facilitator

I recently used Daniel Mocha as my facilitator to help me get my car matricular (registration) renewed.

Having been thru this process a few times already, I knew it would be a long day of hassles and dumb questions.

Much to my surprise, I was in and out in 30 minutes! And I have to give credit for that to Daniel. I’ve used other facilitators before and had nothing but problems.

Daniel made all those problems go away. He collected the information on my matricular in advance, let me know how much my bill would be, let me know I had a fine on it, and told me what I needed to make sure to bring with me.

He then met me at my house and came with me to my appointment (you now need an appointment, which Daniel had set up for me).

We got there early (his plan) and he convinced them to let us in early. They took us in at 8:30 and we were out by 9 AM (my original appointment time)

For all of his planning and effort, Daniel only charged me $40. That was less than two other facilitators quoted me. I will now make a point to never lose his contact information.

So, if you have to register your car, give yourself a break and call Daniel.

Recommendation for Paradise Indian restaurant, Indian cuisine

Chinnu and Abin are back open for dining in, and continue take-out and delivery of the best Indian cuisine in the city. And not everyone’s cooking has love blended into the wonderful ingredients.

Spicy kick to order, this is hands down the best Indian food we have ever eaten, even if you never try anything else but the awesome Manchurian Cauliflower. We love to cook and prepare clean, healthy food, so when we eat out we want the same.

If you are vegan or vegetarian, you will find plenty here, as well as beef, fish/shrimp, chicken, and lamb prepared in many different ways. And not to mention, the delicious naan and other delicious breads from southern India, as well as juices and teas. If you haven’t been in a while, please go and enjoy this delicious food prepared for dining in, then take an order home to enjoy for a late-night snack! Or if you’ve never been, please go on our recommendation, we promise that your taste buds will be totally delighted.

Don Colon Restaurant

I am always astounded by Don Colon. This time by a private dinner party at which he, the hostess and 6 others were the guests. The waiter, wearing a mask and face shield, was the only other person in the dining room. The carefully arranged U-spaced tables provided social distancing yet also ease of conversation. The hostess provided a leg of lamb which Don Colon cooked and it was delicious.

Amazing side dishes were prepared by the hostess and another friend. Echoing his 30 years as a restaurateur in Florida, Don Colon made a fabulous strawberry shortcake as a surprise because it happened to be the birthday of one of the guests. The wine and specialty drinks are notable, but not pushed on those of us non-alcohol drinkers.

Of course, we all recognize and support this restaurant across from the New Cathedral and its outdoor seating, and the owner’s Panama hat of the day. I am constantly astounded by the quality and quantity of food–$3 for a huge breakfast, enough to make lunch unnecessary for me.
